Great in-league preview from IHO.

Big Green VS Harvard

They touch on the depth issue. We need to get one of these first two games before we hit the back to back. The best shot is this first game since we are at home. Our guys need to make a statement tomorrow by beating Harvard. I don't think the season will be determined by a win or a loss versus H, but it will give us a good look at how we will fair against the top of the league. The top of the league all have W's against top 100 teams, and beating any of them would be our best win of the season.

Depth however will be one of a few determinants of how league will go. Harvard is rolling out 6 guys who shoot over 50% from inside the arc. Two of those 6 shoot over 40% from 3. They also have two other players who shoot over 40% from 3. All without, arguably, their two best players.

This will be a good test for the boys in Green. Go Big Green Beat H.

Very impressive first half by Dartmouth -- really hot shooting. They may be for real. Still a long way to go though and you would suspect Harvard comes out hard.

After many years where Dartmouth plays very close but no cigar against Harvard, they finally get to blow them out.

Much deserved.

I was worried early on with the quick fouls. But we were hitting from deep and Harvard couldn't stop us even with their depth. Our defense was outstanding. We got blocks and steals. We withstood the attempt at a run and won by a fantastic margin. No close call tonight. Congrats to our team that was a great win.
